Lawyers of reality TV

Last year, Kim DePaola of the Real Housewives of New Jersey was hosting the grand opening of her designer dress shop when a brawl broke out. One of the guests got punched and then nailed with a stiletto heel, leaving a bloody gash on his forehead.

In true reality TV fashion, the cameras kept rolling, capturing all the gory details of the unfolding drama. The man who was hit with the shoe later filed a lawsuit, claiming that the brawl was staged by the show to amp up the drama.
